Practicum in School Administration Handbook: School Principal Program and Supervisor/Director Program.
McCarthy, Joseph M.
This collection of instructions and forms was developed at the Department of Education of Suffolk University (Massachusetts) to assist students, cooperating school administrators, and university supervisors in planning, executing, and evaluating practicums in educational administration. The packet includes a description of the regulations governing a practicum in administration and the necessary elements to be included in proposals for practicums. The specific competencies required by the Massachusetts Board of Education for administrator certification are shown as they apply to the university's supervisor-director training program and the school principal training program. The guidelines for cooperating administrators in practicums are emphasized, including the role of the cooperating administrators and the competencies expected of the trainee. Evaluation forms for practicums in both programs are designed for a trainee's self-evaluation and for the student's evaluation by the university supervisor and the cooperating administrator. The author invites suggestions and emendations from readers. (JW)
